Last month I decided to try out OwlCrate in addition to PageHabit to see which box I would keep. I never ended up posting either unboxing to my blog. You can find them on my Instagram account instead.
OwlCrate won easily. Receiving the box of bookish goods - and a new book - fills me with joy. I hope you get as much joy seeing the unboxing.
This agate gemstone ring from GeoCentral is monstrously big. It is perfect for the royal who loves their jewelry big. The ring covers a good portion of your finger. It is gorgeous in a natural way (my favorite), but I will never wear it. I thought about putting it on my shelf to look at. Instead I decided to add it to my pile of Christmas presents. My daughter would love this ring.
Again, I have no use of this mirror. I do not even enjoy looking at myself in the mirror. Yet it is beautiful and will be going on my shelf. The mirror is inspired by The Belles, a book that has been on my TBR for a while now, and was desgined by Catarina Book Designs.
I love bookmarks and these magnetic clips created by Craftedvan will be well used. They are the perfect size!
This book tin is absolutely my favorite item in this entire box. Right now it is just holding my bookmarks, but will keep plotting until I decide what perfect treasures to keep inside. It is based off of The Cruel Prince, yet another book on my TBR list (I actually have it ready to read). It was designed by Stella Bookish Art. Isn't this tin amazing?
Ironic story: The oldest of my daughter's decided that she no longer wanted her bookshelf. It was just storing junk and I really wanted a new one so I agreed and acquired it from her. The top shelf was pretty banged up. It will be good for holding light items - you know like my new book tin and mirror. Looking at the bookshelf I thought it would be awesome if I got an item that would lay down and cover up the pant and dents on the shelf. Then I got this tea towel in the box. I was overjoyed. To make it even better it is a quote from Sarah J Maas - an author I have just started bing reading. How have I never read her before? Your guess is as good as mine. At least I am making up for it now. I think Owl Crate might just be mind readers.
I love the OwlCrate pins. They are pinned to my purse like I used to do in middle school and high school. It is perfect! The quote is also amazing. It is from Before She Ignights. The book just made it to my TBR. The artwork is stunning, I am not sure what side to hang up.
The grand reveal - the book is Grace and Fury. I had not heard of this book before. It looks interesting and the new cover is amazing. I have had to stop myself from opening it and reading it since I got it. I will get to soon - and use the matching bookmark. Perfect!
My OwlCrate boxes bring me a simple kind of joy. It is not so much about the stuff as much as there is someone in the world that gets me this much.
I am venturing into the world of BookTube. I know I have a lot to learn but posting my first video is a step. So, here is my unboxing of June 2018's Fantasy Box. I liked it a lot better than May's box!! The book is also amazing. I may have already read it. The review is coming soon.

For some reason this post has been a long time coming. This is the third time writing it. Every time I come back my draft never saved. Tonight I am buckling down and just finishing this post until it publishes.
I actually unboxed the May Page Habit box almost two weeks ago. My birthday was the end of May and my box arrived on that day. It was perfect since the box was my birthday gift to myself. Sometimes it is just nice to have something unknown to open.
Unfortunately, this was my least favorite Page Habit box. I am just not all that excited about the book or all of the items in the box. However, I am excited that next month they are comparing the Fantasy box to Annihilation. So guess what box I will be getting this month. I am super excited. Hopefully I am not disappointed. I guess I need to get better at guessing what the book is. . . But then what is the fun in that?
The first item was a light bulb. It changes colors. It may eventually be used for Instagram photos. I am not sure how well it will work. Even still it did not come with batteries so who knows when I will try it out.
The short story is The Ones Who Remain. I am actually excited to read this, more than the book. It looks good at first glance. I guess I need to have post reviewing all the Page Habit short stories.
The keychain is really light weight, which is nice. I have it on my keys now. I was thinking it was more of Harry Potter idea, but someone mentioned The Flash. That may be a better fit, and both are really cool.
I like the bookmarks the best of everything. The quote just looks nice, and is perfect. I mean all book lovers love books. And the guy with the feet hanging out is great. I am surprised how well it works. The feet do not get annoying at all. I actually have my bookmarks hanging on the picture hanger we got in the box a few months ago.
